ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- San Juan Community College is planning for in-person classes in the fall, but students will have options.

"We will also have some hybrid classes which means that they will be partly face-to-face and partly online, and then we have two different kinds of online classes. We will have traditional online classes and we will have what we are calling live online classes, in which the instructor is present in real time at scheduled times," said Dr. Adrienne Forgette, vice president of learning at San Juan Community College.


Dr. Forgett said face-to-face classes will include art and health care classes.

"Obviously we are paying attention to social distancing protocols, that means there will be fewer students in a classroom at any time," Dr. Forgette said. "They will be spaced apart for safety. And at some places will have smaller than usual class sizes or cohort sizes"

Forgette says it's important for students to register soon. She also says the college will help students who don't have computers or internet access.
